Change of landscape..
I wrote a week ago that it was difficult to find a landscape that is similar to that of Northern Mozambique; scattered bushes and a wide range of treesseemingly random mixed across the wide, open and burnt-off'ish brown & orange soil covering the rolling hills into the horizon.
Sarah reminded me that it actually has many similarities w. the outback of Australia. And I have to admit, if anything it somehow feels like running in remote Western Australia- but a lot more Humid ;-)
Today brought a distinct change: a range of mountainpeaks began to sourround the horizon infront and E. & W. of us, creating a great panorama w. the narrow flat tarmac road seemingly leading 100's of km forward and into the horizon among the peaks.
... Inspiring for the next days run's :-)
